A High Street Sound Walk by Oliver Payne - Self Guided Trail in GREAT YARMOUTH, Great Yarmouth - Great Yarmouth

A High Street Sound Walk by Oliver Payne


Historic England is working with the National Trust and Sound UK to launch a series of self-guided, immersive sound walks to help people discover the magic of their local high streets for Heritage Open Days.

Artist Oliver Payne’s sound walk explores the contrast and diversity of Great Yarmouth’s high street. Take a journey amongst shops selling used electronics and Eastern European groceries next to pop-up spaces, medieval architecture and decades-old market traders. 

Listen to the stories of local people who have witnessed the street changing. Find yourself immersed in the evocative sounds that capture the street’s unique identity, from the gentle resonance of a medieval Row to the loud and vibrant music heard from outside a barbershop.

Take a moment to slow down, pause and experience the high street in a new way. High Street Sound Walks are available via the Historic England website from 10 September: listen any time via your smartphone or other personal device. HistoricEngland.org.uk/SoundWalks
